See script /usr/share/rear/output/default/01_set_umask.sh 

check out 'man exports' for details around: 

 Map requests
from uid/gid 0 to the anonymous uid/gid. Note that this does not apply
to any other uids or gids that might be equally sen‐
 sitive, such as
user bin or group staff.

 Turn off root squashing. This
option is mainly useful for diskless clients.

I just checked and nobody umask
is 022 on NFS server. 

So I am not sure how the rear is creating files
with 600 permission and nobody.

I just did my first backup using Rear
and noticed that files on NFS mount being created as nobody and 600
due to permission the recover failed and I had to change
the permission to 644. 

where should I change the permission ? 

It is
not umask problem because I did mount the same directory manually and
files being created with 644 permission.
